I don't know about you guys, but I can't pay 10 grand for a dirt bike. I would like to see EFI, but all this other stuff is going to skyrocket the price. And I don't think we'll ever see production two-wheel drive WR's, be real! I'm very happy with my '05 450 and the '06 is even better (I should have waited a year). I like what Yamaha is doing. The WR is at the top of the hill and its not an orange bike!
You can already buy a production 2WD WR.......... for $12,000.00
I saw a video of this bad a$$ off road event from france where they had to ride up this stream bed that had all these step ups and these 2WD Wr's totally excelled, it was pretty impressive. There is also the guy that ran one in Paris - Dakar and did well, especially in the dunes
FI is the future for these bikes, and we'll see about the Aluminum frames but for now I am happy with the handling charactaristics of my 04' and I know my next WR will have a lower center of gravity so lifes good, I just need to get one more race season out of my 04' so I can see if the 07' has FI
